This rendering courtesy of Hanley Wood Home plans shows House of the Week HMAFAPW01296. Skylights, a covered porch, and accents of shingles and brick add up to a pleasing facade.

Meeting the needs of first-time homeowners, empty nesters or anyone who wants a smaller, easy-to-maintain house, this open three-bedroom bungalow design, Plan HMAFAPW01296 from Homeplans.com, is economical to build and very livable.

The home features 1,293 square feet of living space, with the option to double the area by finishing the full basement.

Craftsman detailing and a quaint covered porch make a charming exterior, which would fit well in a variety of neighborhoods.

The foyer steps up to the hearth-warmed great room, with the kitchen and dining room beyond. Vaulted ceilings bring volume to both rooms, and the open layout creates easy circulation between areas. An island adds counter space in the kitchen, where a window over the sink offers a view of the backyard. A niche in the dining nook creates room for a buffet or china hutch.

In the home's private zone, the master suite enjoys its own bath with a skylight.

Two additional bedrooms share another full bath, also with a skylight.
